Baby Led Weaning is essentially letting the baby feed itself as early as possible. This of course requires age-appropriate food, patience, and a lot of clean-up. However, it can have positive effects such as eating a wider variety of food, and at the times of the spoon-feeding strikes around 8-10 months, BLW is the obvious option. Some recommend to start Baby led weaning from 6-8 months, which makes sense in terms of my experience with my son, who as of 10 Sep 2016 is 10.5 months.
